Last year our very talented Grade 5 students took part in the Barwon Estuary Project. Led by their teachers and a fantastic bunch of local volunteers. Students completed activities in their chosen area focussing on the Barwon Estuary. The result is this fantastic diary which has been given to all students in the school. Thanks to everyone involved and Bendigo Bank for helping make this happen! I know our new Grade 5’s are looking forward to taking part in 2018!

On Wednesday Deidre and Margaret from Barwon Heads Sustainability Group gave up their time to help us pot some basil, capsicum and tomatoes for our own gardens. They gave us some great tips and taught us how to do it correctly! If you were explaining to someone how to pot a seedling, how would you explain it? Post a comment below!

On Sunday the 19th many teachers, parents and students came in to school for the working bee! Lots of jobs got done around the school. In the garden we were busy getting the worm farms ready, preparing the veggie boxes by adding mushoroom mulch and manure to give the plants good conditions to grow in. Once we did this we put down pea straw to keep in the moisture. Click on the link below. So many videos about gardens and schools that have amazing spaces! Watch some videos and write down some tips that will help our garden. I’d love to hear about chickens especially!
